According to a recent report from the CDC, nearly 10 percent of millennials (those born between approximately 1976 and 2004) have some degree of hearing loss. The primary cause of this hearing damage is loud noise. While previous generations were mostly exposed to loud noise in work situations, millennials and younger children receive most of their exposure to loud noise at home. So what exactly is the problem? While household chores might cause hearing loss when tools and appliances reach 85 decibels for extended periods, it only takes two minutes of loud music played at 110 decibels to cause damage. Common culprits of loud noise in the home include blenders (88 dB), leaf blowers (95 dB), and hairdryers (90 dB).

P.S. It is not uncommon for the noise levels in fitness classes to reach 110 dB.

Unfortunately, many people don’t realize they have exposed their hearing to dangerous sound levels until it is too late. Fortunately, today more than ever, people are learning more about their hearing and the ways to protect it.
